Top Five May Movies


And we go to May! Per usual, comments and suggestions are welcome.

Shawshank Redemption - A wonderful movie and really not limited to just one time of year. But they tarred the roof of the shed and [Morgan Freeman voice] "May is one damn fine month to be working outdoors."

Ferris Bueller's Day Off - It's tricky to place this movie but it feels like a May movie to me. In many ways it is summer but school is still going on. It must be near the end of the school year, not the beginning. Anyway, another great movie.

Sound of Music - Another one that was on TV every year. My mind has it in May. It's certainly not un-May like, right?

American Pie - Very much an end of school movie. Also much raunchier than anything previous. But still pretty darn good.

Saving Private Ryan - A tough call with this one since its central event, D-Day takes place in June. But there is no better Memorial Day movie than this one.

Sound of Music seems Christmassy to me - but that's 'cause of "My Favorite Things" being co-opted into a Christmas song.... (but I seem to remember it being on TV in December. I could be totally wrong).

Another musical for spring - CAMELOT! ha! The Lusty Month of May! :)

I wish I had time to watch all these movies in their 'months!' that would be fun.

Ah Camelot! I wish I would have remembered that!
